Size guide - Pack of 5 Large Plug Plants 

Pot Ready, Large, Healthy plants individually rooted in large plugs of compost. Ideal for planting into baskets, containers or small areas in the garden. Best results achieved if grown on for a short while in 9cm/10cm pots prior to planting out if planting straight into garden borders. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 4-5cm deep x 3-4cm square. Foliage height 5cm-12cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.

This variety of Celery, Victoria, is a more ‘quick to harvest’ vegetable than other varieties and with a late spring planting you could be picking and eating your own home-grown celery by mid-July.

  • Prick out and pot on individual plugs and grow on until they are approx. 15cm tall.
  • Prepare the soil by digging in plenty of well-rotted manure when the bed is empty in the late winter.
  • Prior to planting, sprinkle granular general purpose fertiliser to nourish the soil and lightly work in with a fork.
  • Harden off the plants before planting outside 20cms apart in blocks rather than rows, water them in well and once planted, apply a mulch of bark to help retain moisture. 
  • Sprinkle some slug pellets around the base of the plants as slugs and snails love munching on young celery plants.
  • Harvest from late July onwards as and when required.

Special requirements – Celery plants can be planted fairly closely together because you are trying to keep the light out help to blanche the stems.   As the plants grow bigger you can wrap cardboard around the stalks and tie loosely with garden string to keep the outer stalks whiter.
